Secretary’s report, September Meeting
President Cheryl P. Rider called the September board meeting to order on Sept. 5, 2018 at 8:30 am. The first item on the agenda was to approve the Secretary’s report. Shirley Tudhope made a motion to approve the Secretary report. Ana Morgan seconded the motion.
Shirley T. also motioned to approve the Treasurer’s report and LeAnne Bristow seconded the motion.
Next, President Rider asked for updates and input from the website committee. The groups are being moved from the Yahoo Loops to the new forums and so far things have run smoothly. The new format will mean a lot less work for those that are running the groups and will take some time to get used to but should really streamline the process. Marie suggested that members use the update form already on the website for the current addresses.
The 20<sup>th</sup> Anniversary pendants were unanimously approved by the board in a previous discussion Merien will begin the process of getting the first batch ready. LeAnne volunteered to help with distribution. The board discussed ways to ensure we have correct addresses on file for the members before mailing out the pendants.
There was a lot of discussion regarding the Pages From the Heart contest and ways to improve it. A committee was formed to help overhaul a new contest.
The Workshop committee is looking for a new webinar coordinator. There was discussion regarding the workshops being on the forum and how that has eliminated most of the problems. The board also discussed ways to bring volunteers in to help with committees. This will get more people involved, hopefully people who at some point will be willing to take on bigger roles later.
Next on the agenda was the discussion of the NaNoWriMo loop and if FTH was going to offer prizes again for participants this year. The board has $30 budgeted for the top 3 winners ($15, $10 & $5 Amazon gift cards).
Ana Morgan volunteered to serve as the election coordinator. This year we need a new VP Programs as well as a Treasurer. The board approved Ana as the election coordinator.
Next, the board approved the purchase of a subscription of Jacquie Lawson e-cards.
There was no other business to be discussed.
LeAnne Bristow made a motion to adjourn the September meeting and Shirley Tudhope seconded the motion.
President Rider adjourned the meeting on September 15, 2018 at 7:15 pm.
